While we wait for Breath of the Wild 2 to manifest, you can scratch your Legend of Zelda with the upcoming remaster of Skyward Sword for the Switch.

Announced back in February, and more recently shown off during Nintendo’s E3 presentation, this HD remake of the 2011 Wii title is set in the aerial kingdom of Skyloft. As always, you play as the hero Link who sets out to save Zelda when she’s kidnapped by a mysterious force and taken to the abandoned surface world beneath the clouds.

If you’re someone who is deeply invested in the Zelda timeline, Skyward Sword takes place first and features the creation of the Master Sword (among other things).

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will be available from July 16. There’s also a new amiibo of Zelda and Loftwing, which you’ll need if you want to unlock the fast travel feature.

Here’s how you can grab a copy of the game while also saving yourself a few rupees.
